If I switched to greatestjournal and just used this list to announce that something had been updated over there?

Or should I do a Yahoo! or a Google group?

Seriously - looking for options.

Either way - this journal is getting f-locked.

I would follow you into hell General Jinni.

I don't know what greatestjournal is but I'll do some research and get back to you on that one. But I'm more than willing to join a Yahell! or Google group.

And now I think I want to call you General Jinni more often. ;)

If I'm a General does that mean I get to appoint like...Lietenants or Colonels or something? Because, hell yeah to having my own pseudo-army.

And - Greatest Journal = TWO THOUSAND ICONS!!!! OMG *DIEZ*

SPN - Whoa...

And - Greatest Journal = TWO THOUSAND ICONS!!!! OMG *DIEZ*

I saw that when I went and snagged kaylashay81 over there. I don't know what the hell I would do with that many. It's mind blowing.

Do generals need artists? You know to paint those heroic pose moments where your hand is stuck in your shirt? :-)

I think that if I have my hand inside my shirt, the last thing I'm doing is being heroic... but if you want to paint *that* then, go for it. *grins* You can be the official Legion (because I refuse to call it an army) artist.

Woot! I'm official! Yay!

I think that if I have my hand inside my shirt, the last thing I'm doing is being heroic... but if you want to paint *that* then, go for it. *grins*

And that's why you create such nice handbaskets for us all to follow you in. ;-)

I need to make an icon for that... The Legion of Jinni - Chief Artisan

Create handbaskets?

Makes it sound like I'm leading the Legion of Basketweavers. *roflmao*

And, yes, you do need an icon that says that. If only so that other people can go WTF every time they see it.

You're right. That was quick and painless. :) And now I have a fallback - just in case.

I don’t want power or responsibility but I would like to be in charge of the explosives.

Okay. You're officially in charge of explosives. Don't the military types have a fancy name for people that are explosives experts?

I'd follow you to yahoo, most definitely, and agree to you posting just links to greatestjournal.

Can I sign up as army cook and back-rubber?

If you must do one of those things do the GreatJournal one with the links here.

I would follow you anywhere too.

I think yahoo sounds good, but wherever you go, I will read!

I want to sign up for the person gets to play with all the pretty shiny things.

Wish I hadn't lurked and told you I was here

I just want to say that you are one of my favorite writers. i have read everything on your journal and love Alec the best but I am a die hard lurker. I guess I need to get an account. Please tell me that i will be able to read your stuff elsewhere and i promise to delurk for good.

Re: Wish I hadn't lurked and told you I was here

Aw. Thank you.

I'll be uploading everything slowly to my greatestjournal account. It's just going to take a while.

I just can't sit back and keep posting here after what LJ did. It was wrong on so many different levels. They have a right to do what they want with their site... but I don't have to support it.

So - go on and find me over on greatestjournal and start watching there. In the meantime, you can still read the stuff I have archived at silentobsession.com.

I really am sorry that I had to f-lock... it actually hurt me to do it, to make that decision not to post here anymore.

:(

Thanks for taking a moment to say 'hey', though.

LJ has hurt my heart today. So sad.

Re: Wish I hadn't lurked and told you I was here

I hope this works. i have become an official journal person. I just want you to know how much I enjoy your work and I will follow you any where. I hope that this means that you will friend me and I am willing to produce ID. though I am not sure how to do that on a journal considering LJ won't sent me the confirmation email to officially show my name as "strangevisitor7". Argh this is harder than i thought

I don't know what to think about it all. Yes, LJ has a right to do whatever they want. Yes, pedophilia is icky. But the blanket deletion of any account that had certain words in their interests is just stupid.

*sigh* I don't particularly want to switch to another journaling service, though I will sign up if everyone flees to there and I have no other way of keeping track.

Hmmm... Yeah, if you feel it necessary, put links here for the GJ stories. I doubt I'd sign up for a fandom e-mail group, since I'm pretty much done with them cluttering up my in-box with crap.

Just for curiousity's sake, since you've signed up at GJ, what's the user interface like?

And, seriously, 2K user pics!!!

Posted by: jinnifanfic (jinnifanfic)
Posted at: May 31st, 2007 02:42 am (UTC)

The user interface is exactly the same as LJ. Even uses the same lj commands for cut, user, etc. It's so simple to switch over that I don't even feel bad about doing it. I'll miss the people over here that choose not to read me over there... but I hope they'll all at least follow my links when I update.

Will you be updating your personal LJ at all, to tell us how you're doing? Or will it be a complete move to GJ?

Posted by: Emily (malana)
Posted at: May 31st, 2007 02:50 am (UTC)

I went ahead and signed up for a gj account. Not sure if I'll really use it, but it'll be nice to have in case things get worse over here. I do hate change, so getting use to an new interface doesn't please me. Especially since I have everything set up how I like in on LJ in terms of layout, custom mood theme, icons, etc. Then again, 2000 icons is a mighty big draw.

Of course, I had to change my username, which sucks. I'm malana42 over there.

Yeah, I think GJ is the best bet - easiest switch over, and I don't have to resurrect my yahoo groups. I've been playing over there all night (cause it beats reading all the new ways people have come up with to say 'I hate LJ'), and while I'm kinda missing the amount of control over how my journal looks, and a few other key features that are on LJ, I think its pretty good.

And, as always - 2000 user pics!!!!!

Plus, I got a new user name. I'm now 'emeraldspider' on GJ, because lyl_devil has been bothering me for some time.

WordPress and RSS feeds! That way, we can read the posts through a variety of channels, but the ToS for the content is much more flexible -- basically, whatever site/hosting you're using. I'd read, uh, blog.silentobsession.com or whatever. :D

But really, I love reading your fic and will follow it wherever you're comfortable.

I'm satyrnfive at GJ. I don't know if I'll actually use it though. We'll see.
